48000 people voted in the last election in the town of Southboro If only 55 of the registered voters voted in the last election how many people are registered to vote?
Answer . I assume you mean that 55 percent of the registered voters voted. That being the case, and using x = 100 percent, then .55x = 48000; divide both sides by .55 and the number of registered voters is approximately 87273.
To my question as to which states allow felonies to vote?---As of 2010 I found: (1) States where prisoner, probationers, & paroles can vote (2 states: ME, VT) (2) States where probations & paroles can vote (13 states plus DC: DC, HI, IL, IN, MA, MI, MT, NH, ND, OH, OR, PA, RI, UT) (3) States wher…e only probationers can vote (5 states: CA, CO, CT, NY, SD) (4) States where all people with felony convictions can vote upon completion of their sentence (20 states: AK, AR, GA, ID, IA, KS, LA, MD, MN, MD, NE, NJ, NM, NC, OK, SC, TX, WA, WV, WI) (5) States where only some people with felony convictions can vote (8 states: AL, AZ, DE, FL, MS, NV, TN, WY) (6) States where all people with felony convictions are permantly not allowed to vote (2 states: KY, VA) In March 2010 a proposed FEDERAL bill, called the Democracy Resotoration Act (H.R. 3335) sponsored by John Conyers (D-Mich.) and many members of the Congressional Black Caucas would require ALL states to allow felons to vote in federal elections once they're released from prison. The bill notes that "state disenfranchisement laws disproportionately impact racial and ethnic minorities" and that, "given current rates of incarceration, approximately one in three of the next generation of African-American men weill be disenfranchised at some point during their lifetime."

There are currently (in 2008) 12,752,417 registered voters in Texas. There are also 17,735,442 people in the Voting Age Population (VAP). This means that Texas currently has a 71.90% voter registration rate, so around 7 out of every 10 people who could register are registered. The turnout of… Texas voters in the 2004 presidential election was 56.57%, so around 6 out of every 10 people who were registered showed up to vote. In that election, 81.50% of the Voting Age Population (the people who could be registered) were actually registered. About 8 of 10 people who could register are registered. The rate of registration has gone down since 2004. Almost 2 million people have been added to the potential voters of Texas, but a smaller portion of them are now registered. In other words, voter registration has not kept up with the surge in people moving to Texas and turning 18 years of age. Bush defeated Kerry in Texas by approximately 1.7 million votes in 2004. If Texans were registered to vote in 2008 at their 2004 level (81.50%), 1.7 million more voters would now be registered. It is worth noting that not all of these voters would show up to vote (in 2004 only 46% of the people in the Voting Age Population--the people who could be registered to vote--actually both registered and showed up to vote). If these turnout results hold steady, a voter registration drive that brings rates back up to 2004 levels would increase the actual vote in 2008 by approximately 963,000 voters. Nationally approximately 9 out of every 10 registered voters shows up to vote. This is much higher than the 6 out of 10 rate in Texas.

I don't think that any country or state would adopt this practice as it would open the election up to fraud.

According to the Washington Post, "Overall, turnout in the midterm elections was projected at 42 percent of registered voters, about 1.2 percentage points higher than in 2006." (It should be noted that even though there was a slightly larger turnout than in 2006, about 58% of voters stayed home.) Al…so, according to most polls, the makeup of the electorate this time was different: there was a large "enthusiasm gap," such that Republicans voted in larger percentages than Democrats did; also, younger voters decreased, as did minority voters; and older voters, as well as white voters, came out in larger numbers than in 2008. 82.5 million people voted, many of whom were spurred by anger over the lingering recession. But it is worth noting that this number was far fewer than the more than 131 million people who voted in the presidential election of 2008-- generally, presidential elections bring out a much greater number of voters than midterm elections do.

That's a difficult question to answer, seeing that there's no religious test for voter registration, and there's not even a space to fill in your religion on the registration forms ... you'd have to write it in the margin. But if we assume that Jews register in roughly the same proportion as … everybody else, we ought to be able to back into an answer with the help of data from the US Census Bureau. For the November 2011 elections, 59.8% of the US general population over 18 years old were registered to vote. That should be a very helpful number. Let's see what it would mean in terms of Jewish population in the US. According to one on-line source that I consulted, the 2011 Jewish population of the states ranges from less than 0.1% in North Dakota to 5.7% in New Jersey. When the whole USA is put together, Jews total 2.1% of the population. I see a little problem here with the information that I have: In the Census data, registered voters are 59.8% of only the population over 18. But all I have for Jews is the total Jewish population of the country, not the population over 18. So for purposes of our present interesting but meaningless exercise, I need to make a best-case/worst-case (depending on your particular bias) adjustment. I suspect the questioner may be looking for evidence that Jews swing big influence with the vote in this country, so I'm going to assume that Jews register more than the general population . . . and that 59.8% of all US Jews are registered to vote, and not only 59.8% of those over 18. If that were the case, then there are a few ways to express an answer to the question: -- One way to look at it: Jews constitute 2.1% of the total US population. We're assuming that 59.8% of all Jews are registered to vote. So Jews registered to vote constitute 59.8% of 2.1% of the total US population, or about 0.013 of the total population. -- The other way: The Jewish population of the USA at the end of 2011 was estimated at 6,588,065 . If 59.8% of all Jewish men, women, children, and infants in the country are registered to vote, then that's about 3.9 million Jewish registered voters. How influential is that ? In the US presidential election in 2008, there were 69,456,897 votes for the Democratic candidate, and 59,934,814 for the Republican candidate. That total is 129,391,711 . The total Jewish voter registration that I estimated up above is about 3% of that number. From another angle: If 59.8% of the total American Jewish population were registered to vote, and every single registered voter turned out on election day and cast a vote, and all of the Jews in this country voted as a single monolithic bloc, every last one of them for the same candidate, then their votes would have amounted to 5.7% of the Democratic popular vote, or 6.6% of the Republican popular vote. Spread that out among the 50 states, and it's hard to make a strong case that the "Jewish vote" made the difference in awarding the winner-take-all electoral vote of any state. At least that's how it seems to me. I could be wrong. (MORE)
